Lorde - Royals

Lorde, a teenager from Auckland, New Zealand is about to mix things up in a big way. With fresh yet contemplative lyrics Ella Yelich-O´Connor (her real name) manages to hit a spot  that is uncomfortable but familiar.

this is what she adds to the video:
"lately i've been waking up at 4 or 5 a.m., turning things over in my head. so much to think about, so much to break down and process and decide. i'm only at the beginning, but it has always been important to me that everything feels cool, feels right. this song means a hell of a lot to me, and to others, and i guess what i tried to do is make something you could understand. a lot of people think teenagers live in this world like 'skins' every weekend or whatever, but truth is, half the time we aren't doing anything cooler than playing with lighters, or waiting at some shitty stop. that's why this had to be real. and i'm at that particular train station every week. those boys are my friends. callum's wearing a sweater that used to belong to me. so it all feels right, and i can sleep. thanks for being with me all the way so far -- so much to come, such great heights. i'm just getting started. enjoy xx"
here is a remix of another great Lorde song with a free download link.
